  1. Mix garlic and mayonnaise together in a small bowl. Spread mayonnaise on 1 side of the bread slices. Mix arugula with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until coated; divide arugula in fourths, placing each portion atop mayonnaise side of a bread slice.
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray, place over medium-high heat, and crack eggs into skillet, one at a time. Cook on one side only until whites are firm and yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. Season eggs with salt and black pepper. Gently place an egg on each open-face sandwich.

This is one of the most flavorful combinations we have come across. We chose Francese rolls lightly sprayed with olive oil and warmed in a toaster. Rest of the recipe is a piece of cake and fant...

Man, this was SO good! Since I was making it just for myself, I scaled it down, using 1 egg and 1 cup of arugula. I used a slice of multi-grain bread that I had on hand which I toasted first. Gr...

I toasted the bread---I do not recommend. It dried it out too much. Maybe lightly toasted but that's all. Delicious blend of flavors.

Great base recipe! It's easier to eat if you toast the bread before assembling. I've played with different combinations...chorizo & watercress, chèvre & kale, mushrooms & rainbow chard. All tast...
